Don't forget to add the scientific name so that it will be removed from the unidentified list!

Hi Rachel! Welcome to Project Noah! Thanks for the additional pics! I agree with opossum too! Cool find!

Yes I can do that! I'm new using this so it may take me a bit to figure out how to add more photos

Do you have any additional photographs you could add to help us ID? Perhaps a top view & bottom view? Also, please consider adding this to the "Identifying Animals Through Osteology" mission. http://www.projectnoah.org/missions/8475...
